Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux have reportedly picked a best man for their low-key California nuptials
According to the National Enquirer, America’s sweetheart Jen has selected her brother Alex – also known as AJ – to serve as best man when she ties the knot to beau Justin in an intimate ceremony in their Bel Air Mansion, which is thought to be taking place before the end of the year.
Biker AJ, the 24-year-old son of Jennifer’s dad John Aniston and his second wife, Sherry Rooney, likes to keep a low profile, but is known for his punky Mohican-style hair and penchant for body art.
An insider told the Enquirer:
‘AJ is exactly the kind of person that security would throw out of Jen’s wedding. Instead he’ll be front and centre at the ceremony.
‘Justin feels that having AJ act as his best man at the wedding will give him an anchor in the family. There’s no doubt that AJ is quirky, but he’s got a good heart and Jen does love him.’
The source added that this time around, Jen ‘wants to go the extra mile to let her father see that she is still happy at last. And she knows that including his son would make him happiest.’
The insider also reportedly told the publication that Jennifer is trying to distance herself from the OTT, opulent wedding ceremony she had for her first marriage to actor Brad Pitt in 2000, explaining that she wants ‘a small family affair’ when she marries Justin.
‘Jen hated her wedding to Brad Pitt. It was too big and incredibly stressful,’ the source revealed.
